The family of Chime Amaechi who was found dead along with his friend, DJ Olu last weekend has spoken in an interview with Thenetng in Lagos. During the Interview, Chime’s dad revealed that he was in Ibadan when he learnt of his son’s demise, ‘we were in Ibadan when we got the call that Chime had died’.
His sister also spoke about the incident. She said, “when I heard the news I couldn’t believe it, I thought it was a lie, I couldn’t believe and my brother had to call our family friends to take me to their house. At that point, we didn’t knwo how to break the news to our parents so we had to look for someone to tell them.
‘we heard he was sweating, bleeding from his nose and mouth and was foaming from his mouth before he passed on. Some of his friends began to call to say the last time they saw him, he was fine at a filling station, someone else said they saw him on Snapchat eating and no one has made mention of the fact that Chime and Olu ate and it was the last place they visited before they went home”
furthermore she said, “Chime was not that kind of person. I have seen addicts and I know how they act…My brother or Dj Olu were definitely not addicts. You see, addicts are always fidgeting, their account of what they do is not constant. Chime was always coherent. I never suspected his moves because he confided in me. So how would they say he overdosed on drugs? Nobody is asking for the name of the place they went to eat, neither are they asking if he was poisoned. I am convinced that this was a case of poisoning or sabotage, because I know my brother”
In conclusion she said, ‘my belief is that it was something connected to his business. Her and Olu were negotiating a deal with the Oyo State Government and he had just arrived from Ibadan. The person who reviewed the CCTV footage told us they saw someone drop something in their car and the person left. They should tell us who that person is’ .
